“We need O-negative blood after a patient who was involved in an accident required an urgent operation at Bangkok Hospital Phuket,” said a supervisor at PRBC who asked not to be named.

“Donations of all blood are welcome. However, right now there is a shortage of specifically O-negative blood,” she added.

The alarm was raised after The Phuket News sought information from at Bangkok Hospital Phuket about the patient, who the hospital confirmed today (Feb 14) had already successfully undergone the operation.

“She has had the operation and is stable. However, we had to use blood supplies from other patients whose cases were less urgent. This means there is still a general shortage (of blood in stock),” said a staffer at the hospital.

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday – 8:30am to 4:30pm
